"A Sense of One's Own Potential"--Proceedings of the Reading Maturity: Self-Awareness Workshop, June 6-10, 1977.
Branyan, Brenda, Ed.
This workshop, sponsored by the Department of Instructional Media, Utah State University, gave special consideration to the relationship between the art and science of reading, and developing self-awareness. Dr. Jean E. Lowrie addressed her papers to reading maturity, reading guidance, and reading programs on an international level. Dr. Stan Patterson's presentations focused on working with students in a personalized program of reading guidance aimed at helping today's youth face the future, and Mrs. Patricia Powers presented an informative session on self-awareness, its definition and dimensions. Feelings, reactions, perceptions, and behavior were the primary areas of concern reflected in these papers. Self perception and individual conceptions of reading were simultaneously considered in light of the value attached to reading in one's personal life, in the lives of the students, and in relation to the contributions that human and literary efforts make to the lives of all involved. A selected bibliography is included. (Author/JEG)
